Constitution
Approved at
Mass Session
All-Campus Group
Gets Temporary Title
Students unanimously ratified the
constitution as presented at yester-
day's mass meeting of the all-campus
organization, temporarily named
"Student Organization for Interna-
tional Cooperation."
This name was chosen at the first
mass meeting held last week, but it
must be approved by the University
administration before it may become
permanent.
It was announced at the meeting
that the Executive Council had elect-
ed Jack Gore as representative to
the Washington Youth Conference
to be held June 25 and 26. In the
event that Gore is unable to attend,
Ethel Shirwindt was elected the alter-
nate representative. The delegate
will return to campus and report the
results of the conference, which is
being held by youth groups from all
over the United States to make plans
for the coming youth conferences to
be held in London and Prague this
fall.
The organization has been formed,
as stated in the preamble to the
constitution, "to promote world youth
cooperation and understanding."
The constitution provides for an
Executive Council composed of rep-
resentatives from campus organiza-
tions (at present 19 are represented.
but other groups may petition for
representation) and chairman of the
organization's committees. This body
will formulate the policies of the
organization.
An Executive Board, made up of
the officers of the Executive Council
and committee chairman will serve
as a liason between the Council and
the committees. It is a coordinating
body which directs policy into action
through the committees.
All students, regardless of affilia-
tion, may work on or become chair-
man of one or more of the commit-
tees which at present are publicity'
finance, correspondence, public rela-
tions, expansion and arrangements.
Organizations which desire repre-
sentation on the Executive Council
may submit a petition at the first
summer term meeting of the Coun-
cil to be held July 5.
Future plans of the organization in-
clude the adoption of a foreign Uni-
versity which has been destroyed by
the war, and establishment of rela-
tions with other youth groups
throughout the world.
Congressmen Told
To Raise Salary
WASHINGTON, June 12 - (A) -
President Truman told members of
Congress today they are underpaid
"by any measuring trod," and invited
them to grant themselves an imme-
diate raise in line with the Littie
Steel Formula.
This would mean a salary increase
of 15 per cent, and addition of $1,500
a year to the $10,000 drawn by mem-
bers of both the Senate and House.

was organized last month by a group
of students, many of them leaders in
other campus organizations, who, ac-
cording to Gloria Rewoldt, member
of the temporary executive board,
"decided to buy their own school sup-
plies and still save money." As in-
terest grew, these students formed
a temporary executive board, contact-
ed University authorities, book sup-
pliers and student groups. The exec-
utive board then formulated exten-
sive plans aimed at including the en-
tire student body and interested
townspeople in the Club's member-
ship.
Most of the funds derived from the
sale of stock certificates will be used
to purchase a wide range of books
and supplies through book dealers,
the balance of the capital to be laid
aside for future purchases and as re-
funds for any member wishing to re-
tire his membership.
A list of textbooks to be used for
summer courses will be posted in the
Book-Buying Club's Lane Hall office,
which will be open from 2 to 5 p. m.
EWT (1 to 4 p. m. CWT) Monday.
Students, not otherwise contacted,
may purchase membership stock cer -
tificates at that time. They are ad-
vised, by an executive board spokes-
man, to order their textbooks as soon
as possible to assure prompt and cer-
tain delivery by the start of the
summer term.
The present need of the organiza-
tion is for personnel, who are able to
work a few hours a day for the first
few weeks of the summer term at the
Book Club. Those interested are
requested to notify immediately Miss

FEPC Killed
In Cominittee
By Six-Six Vote
Southern Democrats
Seal Doom of Measure
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, June 12-Presi-
dent Truman's request for a perma-
nent FEPO was turned down flatly
today by the House Rules Committee,
with a Democrat from the Presi-
dent's home state casting the decid-
ing vote.
By a six-to-six count, the commit-
tee at a closed door session refused
to send to the floor for a vote legisla-
tion to make permanent the Fair
Employment Practices Committee
created by the late President Roose-
velt to prevent employment discrim-
ination because of race, creed or
color.
Legislation Killed
The action virtually killed the leg-
islation, since it will stand as long
as none of the six committee oppo-
nents changes his mind, and there
was no indication that this would
happen. The House could take the
bill from the committee if 218 mem-
bers signed a discharge petition, but
such a petition has been in circula-
tion more than a month and still is
far short of the necessary signa-
tures.
Michener Supports Motion
It was learned from committee
members that the- four Republican
committeemen, Halleck of Indiana,
Michener of Michigan, Allen of Illi-
nois and Brown of Ohio, were joined
by Sabath and John J. Delaney of
New York, a Democrat, in support
of the motion to send the legislation
to the floor.
Against them were Slaughter,
Smith of Virginia, Cox of Georgia,
Bates of Kentucky, Colmer of Mis-
sissippi and Clark of North Carolina,
Democrats.
Marines Gai
On Soitlierii
O)kiiaaFront
GUAM, June 13 (Wednesday)-(P)
-American troops launched heavy
ground attacks throughout the south-
ern Okinawa front yesterday and by
nightfall had made substantial gains
into high ground of the Yaeju-Dake
escarpment despite fierce resistance.
The first Marines, working inland
from the southwest coast, occupied
positions on Kunishi ridge against
light resistance in a pre-dawn man-
euver - then held their gains despite
heavy artillery, mortar and machine-
gun fire.
Heavy fighting developed around
Kunishi, most strategic height on the
western end of the Yaeju-Dake es-
carpment, Fleet Adm. Chester W.
Nimitz said in today's communique.
However, the Marines not only were
holding their positions but were
bringing up reinforcements under in-
tense fire.
Nimitz said a Japanese aerial as-
sault Monday inflisted "some dam-
age" on a light unit of the fleet. Ten
Japanese attackers were shot down.
At the eastern end of the line, the
Seventh Infantry Division, in a sur-
prise attack, placed forward elements
on top of the escarpment at a point
northwest of Hanagusuku.
Southwest of Hanagusuku - east-
ern anchor of the enemy's fortified
Yaeju-Dake line - other seventh
division troops attacked high ground.
The 96th Infantry Division, which
made the previous two days' most
spectacular gains to capture a pla-
teau in the center of the line, seized
all of Yuza town. It captured high
ground south of Yuza and secured
some terrain on approaches to the

escarpment in the center of the
island.

Near Brunei
Troops Move Ahead
2 Miles on Labuan
By The Associated Press
MANILA, June 13 - Australian
troops have seized all of strategic
Muara Island at the mouth of Brune
Bay and on the mainland hae fought
on two miles southward toward Bru-
nei, capital of the British Protecto-
rate of Northwest Borneo, Gen.
Douglas MacArthur announced to-
day.
On the larger island of Labuan,
which commands the entrance to
Brunei Bay, the seasoned Australian
troops who landed Sunday drove two
miles north of the captured air field.
Bomb Jungle Trails
Heavy, medium and fighter bomb-
ers continued to smash at the enemy
positions along the jugle-tangled
trails leading inland.
Light naval units on night patrol
attacked shore targets in the Brunei
Bay area and at Sandakan on the
northern tip of Borneo.
The advance on Brunei city plac-
ed the Australians about 14 miles
from the. capital and 38 miles from
Seria oil field, one of the prime ob-
jectives in this strike at one of the
richest of all prizes seized by the
Japanese in their drive toward Aus-
tralia.
Naval Forces Hold Bruner Bay
American and Australian naval
forces firmly held Brunei Bay itself,
where the Japanese warships used to
refuel when they were roaming vir-
tually unchecked southward.
On this fourth day of the Borneo
invasion Japanese opposition con-
tinued almost negligible but Austral-
ian commanders predicted "some
strife" as their forces move through
mangrove swamplands and jungle-
tangled wooded areas on the road
to Brunei, capital city.
On Labuan Island engineers work-
ed like beavers to ready the 3,600-
foot airstrip, near bomb-ruined Vic-
toria City, for Allied planes. Aussie
ground troops met their main oppo-
sition at the airfield, They liquidat-

Provisions for
Security Council
Are Approved
SAN FRANCISCO-()-The heart
of a new world charter - provisions
for a security council to enforce
peace and back up its decisions with
armed might - was approved unan-
imously late yesterday by a United
Nations Conference Commission.
They empower a tightly-knit coun-
cil of 11 members to take over for all
the United Nations the responsibility
for stepping into any situation or
dispute which threatens to embroil
the world in conflict in the future.
Council membership is restricted to
the United States, Russia, Britain,
France and China permanently, plus
six smaller powers on a rotating
basis.
The Council could take whatever
measures it considers necessary to
erase the threat of war. It could
make recommenidations, draft terms
for peaceful conciliation of quarrels,
and apply military and economic
sanctions.
Still to be decided, however, is the
voting procedure by which the Coun-
cil will make its decisions and the
question of whether each of the Big
Five will have the right they demand
to veto peace-enforcement action. A
conference committee i working
toward a critical ballot on the issue.
